Mammoth and the rest of FRC Team 971 would like to wish you Happy Holidays and a great new year (and FRC Season).
The team is getting ready for and looking forward to the new season starting on January 3rd. The lab is being cleaned and there has been some preseason materials testing and tuning of our robot designs in anticipation of the new challenge.
A group of intrepid and determined mentors and students have spent the summer and fall working hard at designing and building a precision CNC Router for the team. They have built it themselves because we could not afford to buy a comparable machine. The good news is that they are getting close to their goal of being operational by kickoff. This weekend, motors were turned on and control loops begun to be tuned.
